Garret Renquist is a green dragon, intelligent, witty, bi-sexual, and hot for Holden.

Fire Season is off to well round erotic romance with slowly built up sexual tension that only Lex Valentine can bring to readers. Love knows no boundaries as Ms. Valentine characters Holden and Garrett discover.
With the turn of each page Garrett reluctantly goes slowly to open Holden’s heart to a new height of passion.
But will Holden face the truth and realize that Garrett is the one he’s waited so long for? Or will Holden lose out on the best thing that ever happened to him?
There is so much love and angst between these two men.
I couldn’t help but fall under their spell. Lex Valentine is created a fan for life in me.
Holden is no nonsense man. Garrett is a man who wears his heart on his sleeve. Yet together they surrender to a love worth fighting for. Just as they finally come to realize this it, they are put to the test when they have to separate. Oh how heartbreaking these scenes were for me. *sniff*
These characters are in the ride of a lifetime. I can only imagine what will happen once their story continues. A much deserved kudos and praise to Lex Valentine on this addition to The Darkworld Series.
I give Fire Season a rating of 5 Stars.
